|Sold out of these at c.240p recently on a intraday high, lucky I guess to bank a profit, and reinvested in savills. Got a bounce on their results. LSL not sure about. Doing better than CWD but longer term jury is out for traditional estate agency.|

|Still on my watch list waiting for the bottom.
There is clearly a "new normal" in the property market where sales are down for good......unless the government cuts stamp duty and I doubt that will happen.
Rental is benefiting so that is the flip side.
The big question is......are new disruptors like purple bricks going to start eating their lunch and if so....is there anything they can do about it.|
|Any holders out there c. 200p now?|

|Worth a punt 220p? - or is the property market bust for good?|

|I am struggling to understand the negative effects of Brexit on the housing market. They Have a very good rental department and financial services sector. Bank of England reducing rates and more qe. Apart from people sitting on their hands doing nothing due to the population thinking something bad is going to happen I struggle to understand. The pound has dropped therefore exports should start to rise hopefully increasing employment.|
|Now new results 5 months later and no new posts here either. Yes, Oxman, This share showed up on my radar screen after Brexit but like all companies in the real estate space most investors are holding fire on them for a bit, me included. Even a 5% divi isn't sufficient reason right now so I am watching closely but not committing yet. As for a "return to 410 over the next year or two", that will be a tall order and I doubt it.|
|Not much interest following ok results. Views??|

|I'm surprised no one's picked up on this one. It has excellent fundamentals - low PE, low PEG, rising profits and Dividend yield...
Well hammered by property worries but I expect it to return to 410 over the next year or two.|
|If you can afford a £4m house then the extra stamp duty doesn't really mean a lot.|
|Any idea as to why has fallen suddenly?|
|Broken through recent resistance
|Confident looking outlook from numis.
|through recent resistance at the close - a 1 year closing high
|LONDON (Alliance News) - Numis downgrades its recommendation on LSL Property Services by one notch to Add from Buy but pushes up its target price on the shares given it sees an improving outlook for the company accessible at an attractive valuation.
LSL shares are down by 20% since March 2014, reflecting both moderating conditions in the UK housing market and additional professional indemnity costs. That has meant shares in the company have fallen back to an 11.1 times 2016 price-earnings multiple, despite its forecasts being based on a flat market backdrop and only partially reflecting the new strategic initiatives the company has put in place, which could boost pretax profit by 50-100% over the medium term, Numis thinks.
LSL's full-year results for 2014 were a record for the company, Numis notes, despite mortgage approvals and transactions volumes significantly lagging pre-downturn levels. But while activity in the UK housing market cooled in the second half of 2014 and into the start of 2015, the outlook remains positive, in particular following the Conservative Party's victory in the General Election, which has removed several elements of uncertainty.
Alongside other positive fundamentals, the housing market should see a good second half of 2015 against increasingly weak comparatives and any pick-up in activity has the potential to boost LSL estimates significantly given Numis' estimates are based on flat market conditions.
LSL current 11.1 times 2016 price-earnings multiple compares to 13.8 times for Countrywide, its closest peer, and Numis thinks this valuation gap is too wide and expects LSL shares to react strongly should evidence of improved trading conditions or any success from its strategic growth initiatives feed through.
Numis lifts its target price to 440 pence from 410 pence.
LSL shares are down 0.6% to 386.00 pence on Wednesday.

|Ultimately its all about the Outlook:
The outlook for 2015 continues to be in line with the Board's expectations. LSL remains committed to its Estate Agency strategy of increasing operating profit per branch; expanding the number of Marsh & Parsons branches; growing recurring revenue streams; evaluating selective acquisitions and to its Surveying strategy of maximising revenue generation from B2B customers and optimising capacity management.
The Group has a strong balance sheet, is extremely cash generative and is well placed to increase shareholder value in a changing market with potential additional benefit from selective acquisitions.|
|News due this week. Bullish outlook imo.|
|Houseprices set to rise ...
Panic buying always follows, then rents go up, and people rush to buy or rent. WIN WIN WIN|
